    ^That’s a pretty amazing story, if it’s accurate.

    I was aware that he informed for the FBI but I didn’t know how extensive – and dangerous – his actions were. He was in the middle of some pretty nasty people.

    So, two questions arise: (1) Why did he do it (his argument that he wanted to try and stop the crack epidemic is a bit tough to believe); and (2) How the heck did he gain the confidence of those people? Why would they be willing to open up to him?

    It’s hard not to conclude that he was flipped. But the answer to that second question might be as interesting – and damning -as the answer to the first.

  3. So the rat was a rat.

  4. Whitey Bulger took the pie?

    I have to say that the hysteria – no other word for it – from conservatives over the firing of the Mozilla CEO Eich is a bit much. Oh the vapors, I’m going to faint.

    Sure there’s legitimate concerns/criticism about the action. Mob rule and all that.

    But to call it “liberal fascism” or the “g*y mafia” is way over the top. This isn’t the government imposing some orthodoxy; it’s a private business that is – in what they think is their own best interest – making business decisions.

    Criticism? Fine. End of the world? Hardly.

  6. if you don’t throw a little hyperbole at the bullies, it won’t get better.

    Not that anyone will care because Eich was pressured to do it, but he resigned. I keep hearing “fired” and it drives me crazy. Mr. Eich made an executive decision based on the what he perceived as an untenable situation and stepped down. I’ll leave it to the reader to draw conclusions about the “rightness” of this decision.

    Unfortunately, this is 2014 America and you’re not allowed to do that. Not if you’re Hobby Lobby, Little Sisters of the Poor, Chick-Fil-A, Colorado cake bakers, New Mexico photographers, Paula Deen, the Boy Scouts, … … …

    Only those who preach liberal orthodoxy are allowed to hold public opinions. All the rest get a visit from the “non-partisan” IRS.
